Parsons Dance SFP
The exuberant personality and joyous movement of Parsons Dance fuses the movement of modern dance with the discipline and precision of a classic ballet company. Known for engaging and uplifting works of incredible artistry, Parsons Dance was formed by dance legend David Parsons, whom The New York Times called “one of the great movers of modern dance.” This athletic ensemble creates a spirited evening of dance for all ages.
“Parsons and his company are one of the hottest tickets in contemporary dance… they are all terrific performers, energized…Parsons provides choreography that’s consistently intelligent, witty, well-crafted, and humane.“ —The Toronto Star
